Butanol Production with High Yield and Carbon Conversion Using Novel Biocatalysts

Thursday, January 2, 2020

Butanol is a valuable chemical that can be used for the production of solvents, plasticizers, butylamines and amino resins. Butanol is also a drop-in fuel, which can easily be blended with gasoline or upgraded to advanced biofuels such as jet fuel. Butanol has been produced by the traditional acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation using molasses, starches and lignocellulosic biomass. Unfortunately, the yield of butanol from biomass (e.g. glucose, xylose, starch) conversion is poor... (Read More)
